In 1773,you were here. You were here with Samuel Adams and the Sons of Liberty. You came down the wharfat a dead run, angry men in buckskin and warpaint,whoopingand holleringlike the Indians you pretended to be. You were here that night as the Sons of Liberty swarmed aboard the Dartmouth.In less than an hour 342 chests of British tea were floating in Boston Harbor,and never again would Massachusettspay taxes to foreign rule. You were here because of what you believed in. Freedom. And what you started here led to a revolution that put a new nation on the map of the world. America. You were the beginning. You were here. Come back to Massachusetts. Back to Lexington and Sturbridge Village, Salem and Provincetown, Plymouth and the Mohawk Trail. Because beyond our spar kling beaches and our rolling hills, beyond the excitement of Boston and the quiet beauty of the Berkshires, history is here. Your history. Our nation's Bicentennial is approaching, but don't wait until 1976 to come home. Come back to where you started from. Come back to Massachusetts.
